Our parish includes a part where they light baptismal candles to signify the link between Baptism and Holy Communion (and then later, Confirmation). Two of the very few pictures we took during Mass.
Finally, opening presents outside with family gathered around to see all the beautiful remembrances of her First Holy Communion. We couldn't have asked for a better day all around! Congratulations, Elizabeth in meeting Jesus in the Holy Eucharist! We are proud of you!
Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me;
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee;
From the malignant enemy defend me,
In the hour of my death call me,
And bid me come to Thee,
That with Thy Saints I may praise Thee for ever and ever.
